I have searched around , but I couldn't find a great answer. What HD will work to upgrade my UTV? . found this on another site. 80 or 100 GIG Western Digital , 120 GIG western Digital 5400, and some 120 gig Western Digitals 7200 (only those with a LBA count of 234441648 will work ) but does it matter if the 80-100 gig drives are 5400 or 7200 . I have already bought 1 wrong HD I bought a 120 gig at 7200 but not that LBA # and it didn't work. Would like to get it right this time . Thanks for any help.

The drive that's in thier already is a 5400rpm so you could go with a 5400 however the 7200 "might" be a faster at le3ast if you are for example recording 2 shows plus watching a third.But you have to take into consideration that the 7200 drive will generate considirably more heat.
